IDFA Forum

International co-financing market for documentaries and Europe’s largest gathering of filmmakers, TV commissioning editors, and documentary producers.

Established in 1993, the FORUM is the largest meeting place for filmmakers, producers and commissioning editors in Europe. It offers financing possibilities for creative documentaries: single films, series, and emerging new media formats. Ninety percent of the projects that are pitched at the FORUM end up getting made.

Over the course of three days, independent producers pitch their projects in two different public pitch setups, depending on subject matter, financing, and stage of development. The public pitch setups consist of the more intimate Round Table Pitches and the traditional Central Pitches. The Round Table setup features commissioning editors and the pitch team at a small round table and limited observers seated in the audience, and allows for a more intimate and often lively atmosphere.

Like IDFA, the FORUM puts the creative documentary first, paying particular attention to the changing documentary landscape – one in which not only linear documentaries, but also cross-media films and documentary series are becoming increasingly prevalent.
